 Identify this event: 




1.  WWI training camp

2.  The first FOOT (Freshman Outdoor Orientation Trip)

3.  Yale School of Forestry Camp

Early twentieth-century camps served as laboratories for Yale Forestry students. This camp was located in Milford, Pennsylvania, on the Pinchot family estate.



Gifford Pinchot, class of 1889, was an early advocate of conservation efforts.  He served as the first chief of the United States Forest Service and was twice Governor of Pennsylvania. His family provided the funds to endow the School of Forestry in 1900, now the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies.
